Mesothelioma Compensation Claim

Woods Law successfully completed a mesothelioma compensation claim for an overseas client. We obtained damages for the estate of a man who died in Spain as a result of mesothelioma but who had been exposed to asbestos whilst working as a carpenter with Coventry Corporation.  His work involved fire proofing and he had to cut asbestos sheets.

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is cancer of the mesothelial cells. These cells make up the membrane (lining) that covers the outer surface of most of our body’s organs.

There are two main types of mesothelioma:

  • pleural mesothelioma – the most common type, which develops in the tissue covering the lungs
  • peritoneal mesothelioma – which develops in the lining of the stomach (abdomen)

The cause of Mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos and it usually develops many years (20 to 60) after the initial exposure. Every year in the  UK, there are around 2,300 deaths from the condition.
